    Sydney Mike's Note:

    This recipe comes from the 1986 cookbook, I Hear America Cooking, & although some will tell you that 'pone' should be considered a veggie side dish, others will let you know that it's definitely a dessert! Well, research tells me that, whatever else it is, centuries of cooking account for it as a sweet dessert!

      In a mixing bowl, with a hand-held mixer, cream the sugar & butter, then gradually beat in the molasses & orange juice.

      In another container, from the 1 lemon, mince the zest & set it aside while removing & discarding the white pith from the lemon.

      FOR THE CANDIED LEMON SLICES: Meanwhile, cut the 2 lemons crosswise into 1/8-inch slices & remove the seeds.
    6. 6
      In a covered pan, boil the sugar with the water for 5 minutes, then remove the cover & boil rapidly until syrup reaches the soft-ball stage (236 degrees F), then remove the pan from the heat.
    7. 7
      Dip lemon slices in the syrup & put them on a baking sheet to dry until ready to use.
    8. 8
